Ambient Leeds: Rejection Ops // Sam Mitchell // JD Roberts


Sun Oct 08 2023 at 07:30 pm


The Fenton | East Ardsley, EN


Join us at the Fenton for an autumnal night of ambient music and noise, and immerse yourself in the finest sound art Leeds has to offer!
JD Roberts
Master of the ambient pastoral, and another folk-inspired ambient sound artist, Roberts weaves intricate nature-infused electronic soundscapes of deep forests and lonely seashores, through which melancholic woodwinds wander wistfully. Calm, relaxing, yet darkly mysterious, Roberts' blend of the electronic, the natural and the acoustic is sure to transport you to other worlds.
Sam Mitchell
A Leeds-based composer and sound artist who mainly works with modular synths and granular software to produce music ranging from installations, to ambient music, to acousmatic concert music and beyond.
Rejection Ops
Leeds-based noise improvisers Rejection Ops are a drummer (Grandmother) and bass-and-electronics player (Pollutant Cousin) who sound like each is trying to outdo the other at driving audiences from the room. Described in The Wire as “happily wallowing in a disgusting puddle of puke”.

Their new ambient work seeks to harness all the dripping ennui and disappointment of The Undertaker vs The Big Boss Man at Wrestlemania XV, repurposing it into an intense and ultimately self-defeating internal battle.
